Char of Essential Keytrokes suggested in the comments of the last post that I create a WordPress theme. I have thought about this a lot actually, and while I’m comfortable with the design portion of the project, I’ve only dipped my little toe into the PHP waters. But, it’s something I want to learn how to do, and I’m confident I’ll be able to figure it out with all the excellent resources out there. I’ve decided to take you along on my little journey, and though any of the “experts” who might deign to visit my corner of the blogosphere may find my little journey amusing, I’m hoping that others of us will learn some things along the way.

Are there resources for PHP, theme creation (beyond the WordPress codex), etc. that you who are more knowledgeable might point me to? What has been most helpful to you? Point me in the right direction!
